old English buildings in craigneuk,

I moved to glencairn avenue in craigneuk when I was 5 years old. that would have been 1975, or something like that, I can remember the English buildings at that time were deserted and waiting to be pulled down.

It did indeed sit at the corner of shieldmuir st and English street also on the corner opposite the buildings was a right spit bucket pub called dawsons, full of character and a right hard mans pub.

there are a couple of surviving buildings left, though fully modernised, they are on, on the map you can see winning quadrant, that's all that's left.

the buildings were originally used as housing for the steel industry employees you had ravenscraig and the clyde alloy, these were to meet housing for the clyde alloy employees.

I personally and my friend neily went through every flat looking for anything before they were pulled down.

Hi guys,

Hi, Iím new to this site but have been looking for some living relatives. I see you have been doing research on Agnes shannon and Joseph Jordan. Joseph being one of Richard and Elizabeth Jordanís children.

 Looking around ancestry it is confusing how many children they had . I have a birth certificate for Catherine shannon jordan (1934) but have found family trees relating to another child called Joseph . Do you have information on the children? Or any info regarding this strain of the tree?

Don't believe anything you find on Ancestry or any similar site, unless it's an image of an original certificate. Be especially mistrustful of online family trees. See http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=714261.0
